Had big expectations at time of booking my stay.... Well, they were exceeded by far...!!! The whole place is neat! Very warm welcome, made me feel at home from the first moment of arrival. Hosts and staff are VERY friendly. The surrounding is perfect. The trailrides (perfectly organized and supervised) kind of magic! Even for me as beginner in terms... More

This was an outstanding vacation for me and my best friends. Meris, Seth, Kelly, and Tim instantly felt like family, but when we said we felt guilty for not helping with dishes or the horses, we were told we were "on vacation" and to just relax--we all felt like we were honored guests. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable; the... More

From beginning to end, this was an outstanding vacation. Planning stage: Although the ranch does not have access to cable or text, Meris somehow managed to respond to each of my emails within 24 hrs. (That was no easy task as I had many questions!!! ) Driving to and from the Ranch: Meris' directions are perfect; follow them and you... More

This was our second visit to Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch and just like 'Toy Story 2' the second trip was better than the original!! Meris sorted the horse bit - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, happy - a real life 'Jess', whilst Seth sorted the meals - great salads, sweets and meat / fish dishes, always enough and of excellent variety and quality....

It doesn't get any better than this! What an honor and privilege to come to this ranch. The cabins are cozy with warm toasty heaters. Seth maintains the horses with "upmost care". Maris will fit the riders ability and personality with the appropriate horse. The horses are in excellent shape. My wife age 67 a first time rider, felt safe... More

Meris and Seth (and their tolerant, alert steeds) are amazing guides to this unique, remote eco-system, packed with wildlife, and thousands of years of human history. Their love and knowledge, and care, of their home terrain is obvious. They were as skilled and gentle at handling our very varied family as they are their horses. Every day's ride was different,...

Me and my 2 boys(ages 8 and 10) stayed at the ranch for 5 days. The boys learned to ride horses in some of the most beautiful landscapes this country has to offer. You ride through open fields that have no houses or people for hundreds of miles and through steep canyons with streams running through them. Horses are cool... More

Three nights off the grid in the Gila National Forest. Delicious food (thank you Tim), amazing rides and tour guides (thank you Merris and Seth). Quiet, beautiful, accommodating hosts and accommodations. Highly recommend if you are a horse person and want to experience the great outdoors. Well worth the drive and money!

The horsemanship skills of Meris and Seth came through bright as a star with all the horses they had. My husband and I were overwhelmed by the beauty of the settings and the hospitality was impeccable! Each meal was amazing and our rooms were lovely. We will definitely go back.

My wife a friend and myself just returned from a wonderful week of adventure at Geronimo Trails Ranch. This is the fourth ranch we have visited in the last four years. Most ranches follow the same general format and all that I have visited are very nice. So what makes this ranch special, and yes different from all the others?... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is a real western adventure! Horseback riding or hiking takes guests through open meadows, tall ponderosa forests, up on high hills where the views go on forever, and down into deep canyons with sheer cliffs and crystal clear streams. From the "Top of the World" guests can view the 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest, Aldo Leopold and Gila Wildernesses. Elk, mule deer, wild turkey, javelina and other wildlife abound. Pit houses, Cliff Dwellings, and Pictographs (rock art) of the earliest inhabitants, the Mimbres (750-1150 AD) to explore in the immediate vicinity. This is the land Geronimo and the Apaches roamed. Outstanding gentle and responsive horses for every ability. Comfortable, attractive accommodations, warm hospitality, relaxed atmosphere, great food. Come enjoy the peace and quiet at our small ranch! ... more   less
